Secretary of State in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister Piotr Naimski, presented the transformation of the Polish energy sector.
Implementation of nuclear energy is one of the eight pillars defined in the draft of Poland’s energy policy until 2040, he said. Poland’s energy policy until 2040 envisions constructing six nuclear bocks with total capacities of 6–9 GW by 2043. Minister Naimski emphasized that
Poland chose this direction, as nuclear power plants provide stability in energy production with zero of air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions. He added that this will allow diversification of electric power generation at a reasonable cost, which will in turn ensure competitiveness of Polish economy and give the country energy security.
